THE MISFITS

 

The Misfits, from Horden in County Durham, entertained audiences during the mid 1960's. We know very little about the band other than they came from the Horden area and played the scene in the mid 1960's. The band were made up of guitarist Barry Harbottle, singer Dave Inchcliffe, Bill Cockfield on bass, Frank Turnbull and Jim Turnbull.

The Misfits with Barry Harbottle at the back, then we have the singer Dave Inchcliffe, Bill Cockfield on bass, Frank Turnbull and Jim Turnbull. Brian Pounder, formerly of The Corantos, says: "The guitar Dave is holding over his head is a Guild which my father, Jack Pounder manager of The Corantos, bought from Dave. He then sold it to John Graham who played with The Legends".

Looks like a day out camping here for Bill Cockfield.

All bands have a good business card but don't try ringing Horden 533 these days because you won't get connected!

Thanks to Carol Burnup for providing the photographs of The Misfits on this page.

If you’ve enjoyed your visit to our bands pages why not tell us which group, in particular, you’ve enjoyed seeing and reading about. You're quite welcome to send me an email to record you own personal memories of those glorious sixties!
